The Last Avian Prince by Shinerai The Last Avian Prince by Shinerai
Because that title worked well in the past.

I originally intended to draw this for ~kilara's birthday on the third, but I am a little late. This is her Illumarae character, Drejrael.

I've known you for a long time, Ty, and I don't think I've ever drawn you a full picture!! Happy birthday though, Ty, I hope you enjoy this. C:

This is really pretty, it's like soft and sharp at the same time. For some reason I am in love with the shading in the neck and feathers!

The neon purple glyphs on its white skin give it almost a futuristic quality.  Very cool.

Drejrael has been pretty much one of my favourite avian characters, a tie between him and Nailmus, really. I think this image brings a full feeling of somehow, emptiness in a way, a sorrow, yet a new hope, because of the perspective that you've chosen to portray him with. There's a very tight palette that you've used, and the purple glowing markings contrast to the calmness of the other colours really nicely. Your soft painting on Drej's body is just precious, it makes him look really sleek, like I'd want to touch the texture of his skin. Nice work, and I'm sure that Kilara likes it (:

Man, seeing you work on all the crazy little tiny details was really great, and it really shows in the feeling and grandeur of the picture even if each tiny thing can't be seen at this resolution. I love his feather crest, each feather is just so crisp!

Drejrael I have missed him, like most of the other avians too!

those teeny scale highlights are really great! As is the way you colour the crest of feathers and all his other defining features :heart:

Boy I wanna see this on a bigger screen. All I've got at the moment is a tiny smart phone and the mobile app won't full size the omages well...if at all. But it looks fabulous from what I can see! :-D

Just one question; I remember her dragon species being called Avians. Is it different now?
